City Students is the student community of The City Church. We love students and want any student to feel at home with us – whether you are moving to Canterbury for the first time to study, or if Canterbury is already home, we want to help you on your journey of following Jesus.



Pursuit is City Student’s regular evening gathering during term time where we pursue the presence of God. We enjoy fun praise and worship as well as hearing from God’s word, and there is plenty of time to respond to God through discussion and prayer. Pursuit is a friendly, relaxed environment to get to know other students and young adults from across The City Church. They are always exciting evenings!




Small Groups are how we ‘do life together’ at The City Church, and our weekly Student Small Groups are there to make it as easy as possible to deepen relationships with one another and with Jesus.


Early Morning Praise happens every Wednesday morning at 7am during term time. We gather in the church offices for prayer and worship alongside the sunrise, followed by a well-deserved breakfast. This is the best way to start the day!
